3:04 am
let's talk about this. of course, washington. while no one is in washington right now. they all left on their vacations and the sequester deal is trickling along it looks like it will hit by the end of the week if nothing is done. the president though out talking about this and wanting to -- it seems like now the white house trying to frame this hay we didn't come up with this idea. this is a tragedy. this is a barreling tray. we are heading for a wall but we didn't come up with the site. >> that's not true. bob woodward hardly a republican activist wrote a book called the price of politics in which he discovers that this was the president's idea. he wrote an op ed yesterday. the automatic spending cuts initiated by the white house. jack lew was the originator of this obama originally approved the plan for the sequester. no debate about where this came from. >> who talked about this? jack lew on february the 13th.
3:05 am
'. >> what accredits you with originating the plan for sequestration? was he right or wrong. >> senator, it's a little more complicated than that even in his account it was a little more complicated than that we were in negotiation where failure would have meant the default of the government of the united states. >> i hate to speed it up, did you make the suggestion? >> well, what i did was said that with all other options closed, we needed to look for an option where we could agree on how to resolve our differences and we went back to the 1984 plan is that senator graham and rudman found and said that would be a basis for having a consequence that would be so unacceptable it everyone that wield be able to get action. >> all that sort of government talk and blah blah blah bang and forth. bottom line is yes, it was their plan. later in the day back when this all unfolded, the white house tried to pawn it off on congress and later in the day jay carney had to come back out on the podium after
3:06 am
woodward had done this reporting. yeah it was an idea that we put forth. nerls, it doesn't really matter, now the white house is trying to score political points and scare tactic. it seems if you listen to rudy giuliani on the sequester. listen. >> the president created this doomsday scenario. in order to, you know, frighten people into avoiding the kind of cuts that we have to make in order to balance our budget. i mean, the person who is doing damage to america is president obama. by spending a trillion dollars more for the last four or five years than we have. and who is going to pay that? your children, my children. >> so really the president is playing the blame game with republicans. he just simply trying to ridicule and say you guys are the ones trying to block. this my balanced package that would close tax loop holes for the big spenders and big corporations and republicans are saying absolutely not. we need to come to an agreement on this. you have got to come to the
3:07 am
table too. >> this is why this matters. this was an issue during the presidential campaign. the president looked into the camera i have the quote right here. quote, the success ter is not something that i proposed. it's something that congress has proposed. that turns out to be a lie. flat out. that was untrue. voters probably should have known that second, the idea that if you cut 2% of the federal budget that we close down airports, that we close day care centers. that we fire cops is ludicrous. if someone said cut 2% of your household budget, would you deny your kids antibiotics. of course not. you would stop buying starbucks. you wouldn't get rid of the most vital functions at first. >> they all have a buy-in on this. congress and white house all agreed to go forward with this entire proposal. to your point, tucker. the problem with this plan is that it is so bad that they all knew it was so bad. it was an across the board cut. no discretion given for certain programs.
3:08 am
certain projects. qui pick and choose how this money will be floated around. charles krauthammer thinks this whole hype on awful these cuts is redick lus. listen. >> so much error, so little time. catastrophic? we ever -- are talking about a minuscule amount of money. one half of the%. catastrophic effects on the country? that's ridiculous. there is a solution to that issue which can be done in an hour next week not in a day. in an hour. where you give the administration discretion on how to move the money around. if you do that you don't have two cut a single agent of tsa. a single air traffic controller. >> this phony panic that thidenl among americans. really it seems americans don't want any more spending. 83% of people they think that the government currently has a spending problem. 83%. >> yeah. that's the bottom line.
3:09 am
>> this is designed, of course, it was designed from the very beginning to convey the impression that any cut at all to federal services means you have onto wait for three hours in line at the airport. every federal employee is absolutely vital to the function of the country which of course lewd ludicrous. is there anybody who says we can't cut 2% of the federal budget without paralyzing the country? it's add second degree. absurd. >> if you look at these airports, i went through the list it is small airports that would be affected by. this it would be 150 -- they have to have 150 or fewer flights a year. it's not o'hare which i think in an hour probably launches 150 flights out of chicago. it's small airports across the country. fewer than 150 flight a year they might have to wait a little bit longer. >> since all flights is connected in this country. back up in one airport it can
3:10 am
cascade down. it's impossible to cut anything. that is the white house position. and i think they may win the argument because americans are going to be very frustrated with some of these cuts. >> frustration americans have in general with washington, that's if i can cut my budget. something that i have to do. if my husband happens to lose a few hours at work, or for some reason we can't make friends meet. what do you do? quit buying the starbucks or your kids don't get the fancy shoes that season. you are going to put food on the table and washington needs to giddy up. >> email us at friends at you can find us on twitter. ff weekend. go in and weigh in on that poll. >> 6 o 08 on a saturday morning there is a massive leak this morning at the nation's most contaminated nuclear sites. particulars tanks that hold radioactive and toxic waste are leaking at washington's

3:12 am
>> we're hearing pistorius could resume training as early as monday. department of justice joining in on a lawsuit against lance armstrong. the suit initially filed by team made floyd landis says armstrong defrauded u.s. postal service who was a team sponsor. despite despite illegal doping. the postal service greatly benefited as the team's sponsor. in the suit for reportedly as much as $100 million. those are your headlines. >> thank you, anna. we'll be right back on the other side of this break. first, baby boomers retiring. guess what, you can benefit from it up next, the best places to invest your money. >> then, caught up in raging floodwaters. this woman forced to hold on to her very life. the story behind these remarkable pictures coming up.

>> dra mat mick tithe site in greece. woman caught up in floodwaters. good samaritans are able to pull her to safety. worse storm to hit greece in half a century. one person killed so far in those -- small number of computers breached. no evidence that any customer
3:24 am
information has been taken. it's believed that the same group that got apple and facebook could be behind this attack. anna. >> all right, tucker. thanks. new proposal with west virginia sparking controversy this morning. lawmakers want to mandate drug testing for potential drivers requiring them to pass three separate exams before they receive their learner's permit. earned immediate and full licenses. does this measure take the state quest for safety too far? let's ask our guest now. tamara holder is a fox news contributor and kecia heaven is is a defense attorney and former prosecutor. they join us now for a fair and balanced debate. good morning to you, ladies. >> good morning. i'm going to start with you, you say this is making these teenagers seem as if they are doing drugs and guilty before proven innocent. instead of vice versa. >> correct. this is basically the state saying that we presume that you are doing drugs and so we would like to see that you are not before we give you a driver's license. and the slide is interesting because they define it as the
3:25 am
use of controlled substances. if you go and look at the definition of controlled substances in the law. its any class 1 through 56789 that can be any add drug. that can be any drug for anxiety. there are a lot of scheduled substances that are prescribed legally. and so now the kid has to show a prescription? this is just a very slippery slope. and i think an invasion of privacy. >> thank you. kecia, go to you next. you are echoing what this west virginia lawmaker is saying so the goal was. this they really want to get the driver's license and their incentive would be to not use anything and maybe not bow down to pier pressure to succumb to the drug. that's what the west virginia lawmaker is saying. you are saying the exact same thing. this sin sennive to behave. >> i'm a strong proponent for bills as this one. what we have to realize is that there is a war on drugs. unfortunately, there is a huge problem with our teenagers that are using drugs. and, again, we have to remember that a driver's license is a privilege.
3:26 am
it's not constitutional right. so, in order to enjoy that privilege, the teenager should be tested. and it's a great deterrent in my opinion to keep teenagers or anyone from using illegal drugs. >> currently there are also proposals that are put on the table to try to get people who are seeking welfare, to have drug testing and same with coal miners in west virginia. where does it end? is it going to be for everybody? >> that's the problem. especially licensing, people shouldn't understand it's just driver's licensing. this is marriage licenses. this is a license to be a beautician. all of these licensing issues does the government have now the opportunity to test you for whatever they want in order to for you to get a license? it's a very slippery slope. and there is no way that this is a deterrent because this is just one test. and most drugs don't show up in one test. if you just don't do the drugs for, you know, even a day or so. >> i know you is
3:27 am
unconstitutional search, tamara. >> tyisha, you say that's not the case? >> i disagree. again, the government is not going into your home and saying okay you have to be drug tested for absolutely no reason. they are saying okay you want to enjoy this privilege or want some type of government assistance, you have to full nil requirement and show us you are responsible enough to have these opportunities. >> it is, of course, a privilege and knot a right to drive. tamara, what do you have to say about that? >> well, of course it's a privilege and not a right. i get it's not a constitutional right. certain things that make sense. it's not reasonable to force every single driver to take a drug test just to get the license. if you violate the law, you get caught drinking and driving, you should be punished. this sudden not be -- should not be a precursor to getting a driver's license. makes no sense and time consuming. >> great debate.
3:28 am
got to leave it there thank you. >> 6:26 on a saturday morning here on "fox & friends." president obama campaigned on lowering gas prices. so why are they higher today than they were during the campaign? we explore that next. and a dog stranded on ice in a lake in lake michigan actually. a kayaker coming to the rescue. you have got to see the heart warming rescue coming up.

>> gasoline california a bucks a gallon. >> oh, come on. >> 5 bucks a gallon. >> station near my house, full service attendant is an anger management counselor. ♪ >> that's just barely an exaggeration. welcome back. gas has gone up dramatically. triple a reports the largest four week was -- gasoline increase in three years. 2008 that $4 a gallon was a crisis? listen. >> the well off in this country, high gas prices are mostly an annoyance but to most americans, they are a
3:33 am
huge problem. bordering on a crisis. >> well, here is the issue. so, i was looking at these stories this week. why is gas price now going up. we usually hear it for summer. summer spikes. one of it is that we have a lack of it right now because the refineries do routine maintenance. do you ever get the emails from the favorite email provider that says hey we are shutting down between 2:00 and 4:00 a.m. we are doing routine maintenance. a lot of are shutting down routine maintenance. some had parts problems. also the problem is the supply. when you look at things like the keystone pipeline. we don't have extra cruel coming into the -- crude oil coming into the country. >> a system totally dependent on gas lone. the country would should down immediately about it we have no excess refining capacity. it's impossible to rebuild a refinery because of regulations. take a couple offline and the prices shoot up. it's interesting to look at that sound bite from the
3:34 am
president in 2008. if you remember a couple years ago, too. his top energy aide stephan chu saying $10 a gallon for gas would be a good thing because it would make americans. do you remember this? >> i do. >> it would make americans realize we are too depend tent on foreign oil we need to go green. they are pointing fingers dirty air and water. republicans simply want to make sure that the budget is balanced and that we have, you know, the oil and the gasoline to run our cars. and keep our homes warm. >> but if you listen to former vice president al gore, he says all this talk about the keystone pipeline is is like a drug addict looking for his next fix. listen. >> junkies find veins in their toes when the arms and legs run out. running out. easy to produce oil so we are going to this tar san junk. >> we're all hypocrites on

3:36 am
>> have a salad on the private jet. >> aplenary indulgence. find us on twitter on ff weekend. >> get to the rest of your saturday morning headline. senator john mccain continuing push for immigration reform. he will meet with president obama tuesday to talk about ways to overhall the system. mccain is one of 8 bipartisan senators working on a new bill. mccain says there are still a number of agreements thatted ned to be made. he is cautiously optimistic a deal can be reached by the end of next month. the fda is giving the green light to a break through drug for patients with advanced stage breast cancer. the drug called kadcilia. researchers say it survives survival rates by six months and has fewer side effects. the manufacturer says it will be available within just days.

4:44 am
have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion. who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh.

5:04 am
another fireball in northern california last week and meteor exploded over russia earlier this month. and some history weather to tell you about. the northeast about to get pummeled by another winter storm it is already being blamed for four deaths in the midwest. treasure rugs road conditions left many drivers stranded. strongest winter storm in decades in kansas. some areas up to 18 inches. the roof started to collapse under the weight of the snow. fortunately no one has hurt. let's check in with rick reichmuth. >> not facing extreme weather. >> none of that extreme weather. rick is, that going to be a serious problem? here is boston going to get hit with this thing? >> no. it's not we knowed to fix that in the script there. another for that easter. like last weekend staying offshore. three inches in snow in boston by the time this is said and done tomorrow afternoon.
5:05 am
they can handle that maybe inward a little bit head up towards worcester and parts of vermont. they might see six inches of snow or so. not a blockbuster storm. good news we don't need anymore. take a look at weather maps. give you idea what's going on. this morning as you are waking up, things are cool across the central plains. temperatures only into the teens towards kansas city after the snow you have had there. but you see where that dividing line is atlanta you are 43. then go down to tampa and it's 71. that's where the front is kind of stalled out bringing very significant rain. that rain has been very heavy for the last couple of days there had been a lot of droughts. we really need rain there getting too much too quickly and causing some flooding across areas of georgia and parts of southern alabama as well. this is a future radar. this is what that storm looks like. can you see basic it stays too far offshore to be a big problem for anybody inland. rain from d.c. to philadelphia to new york city. maybe a couple of flakes mixing in there.
5:06 am
and at the end of it, enough cold air getting in towards boston. a little bit of snow. again, nothing that's going to cause huge problems for anybody. here at the daytona 500, however, take a look at this. future radar for tomorrow afternoon. that could cause delays for the second year in a row here at the 55th running of the daytona 500. right now, today things are looking good and temps looking really nice. beautiful shot for you guys right here from that's turn 4 that you got right down there at the end. heading right there towards the black and white checkered finish line. send it back to you in new york. >> all right. thank you so much, rick. check back in with you down at daytona a little bit later. now we want to bring in governor mike huckabee on the fox news channel. >> great to be with you. >> you are here on interesting weekend. no one is there in washington. all at home enjoying tea and toast. sequester is only six days
5:07 am
away from hitting. we are hearing all these scare tactics apocalypse and armageddon. if you listen to the president back in the day, back in 20111 getting rid of this automatic trigger. listen's listen to the president. >> already some in congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. my message to them is simple. no. i will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic particular spending cuts domestic and defense spending. there will be no easy off ramps on this one. >> now the president over the past few days basically saying this is going to be a disaster. >> well, you know, i think this is president imminently notella. never mind. now he is being held accountable for the things he himself proposed. he proposed the success stemplet he said it was a great idea. force congress to being a. truth is, it would force him to act in a leadership capacity that only the
5:08 am
executive branch can do. he has failed to do that he has been out playing golf, campaigning, blaming republicans. if it's really that serious, call the congress to washington. get off air force 1. get back to d.c. sit in a small room with a handful the key legislators and negotiate something. that's not what's happened because this is not a real crisis. >> phoniest thing i have ever seen. a government running trillion-dollar deficits year after year. they are proposing to reduce growth by 2% over 10 years. all of a sudden we don't have air traffic controllers? how does that work? >> it works because you want it to happen that way. you are going to create a crisis in order to say look what the republicans did. the republicans need to come forth, put this statements on over and over. they also need to remind people let's roll back. 1990s, bill clinton is president. they ended up cutting back the amount of federal spending of g.d.p. from 22 to 18%.
5:09 am
that's a 4% cut in the rate of g.d.p. we are talking about a .5% of the overall expenditure. what we did 20 years ago was 8 times more significant. >> part of it governor you say too the liberal media in particular is playing along with it? >> we want to share a poll. president obama says the government doesn't have a spending problem do you think it does? 83% of americans think so. at least registered voters and 14% say no, it doesn't. what do you make of these numbers? >> pretty evident that americans know they don't have more money. taxes have hit them hard even if they are middle class. payroll tax went up. gasoline twice what it was. four prices are up because of the cost to feed. everyone is paying more, getting less. cost of health insurance is dramatically up. they say look we are making
5:10 am
cuts why can't the federal government? the federal government isn't cutting reducing the rate at which they are increasing. only in washington is that a consult. if you are going to get additional from what you had last year but now you are only get to get 9,000 additional? theapsz not $1,000 cut it's a $9,000 increase that's how it works. >> wasn't that long ago when gas prices were described as the media directly under control of the in the of the united states, when gas prices went up it was because bush was heartless and making money. i never quite understood the formula. even president obama not so long ago during the campaign had this to say about gas prices. imagine $4 gas here is what he said. >> i well off in this country high gas prices are mostly annoyance. to most americans they are a huge problem, bordering on a crisis. >> so now we're approaching a bucks or at 5 bucks in some places. i can't remember the last time
5:11 am
i heard anybody lay that at the feet of the president. >> there is not a breathless report night after night after night on the major networks about how the energy prices are really ruining life for many americans. i don't understand the duplicity. that's the problem i think a lot us are having been what's been satisfied and reported by the mainstream press. hold the president accountable. if you held bush accountable. hold obama accountable. if the press is going to elevate a topic elevate it no matter who is president. that's not happening. >> who is to blame for this. reports on gas refineries gone into routine. people aren't driving as much. this is when they should down a little bit so we have a look of output. but we also don't have things like the keystone pipeline. we don't have other forms of keeping up this level. we don't have to have these high prices every year.
5:12 am
>> we don't. we have a lot of oil. we have a lot of natural gas. the shale, the eagle rock. what is that called formation in texas. we have got a lot of oil and gas in this country. the e.p.a. is going to have to relax some of the issues to get it out of the ground. in addition to that it's not just keystone. but i think it's also making sure that investors know that they are not going to be investing in something that the government is is going to ultimately shut down. there is another factor that doesn't get a lot of attention. the formulations. we have to have dozens of formulations some from california, some for winter, some for summer. gas -- having to make a different formula for each state locality and season. is very expensive and we the consumers pay for that. >> we haven't built a new three years. is your boss dumping your
5:13 am

5:16 am
>> quarter past the hour now. how are you feeling? we hope you are doing well. is your boss dumping your wife? don't worry it's not what you think. but more and more companies are dropping spouses from health insurance plans. denying coverage to offset the
5:17 am
rising cost of obama care. last year 6% of large employers excluded spouses. that's higher than years before. >> back with us now to continue this discussion. former governor mike huckabee. governor, this is basically an assault on math by the government telling companies you must do this, that, and the other thing. the truth is in order to exist they have to make a profit. >> sure. >> isn't it inevitable that if forced to carry some people they will drop others? >> they have to. it's a matter of shear economics. let's look at an example. because obama care mandates a full array of coverage that an employee or dependent may not want need or can afford it's easier to not have health insurance through the company than it is tone sure a 70-year-old woman for maternity benefits. that's a generous thing to do. i'm not sure that many 70-year-old woman needs maternity benefits. >> that would be a miracle. >> i will buy the lean coverage that doesn't cover that. >> because that would make sense, tucker. this is government. government has prescribed a
5:18 am
one size fits all benefit type package that includes mental health that's fine, pediatric dental and vision that's fine. what if a couple like my wife and i don't have any kids at home. our were kids are in their 30's. we don't need coverage for vision and dental for our kids because we don't have them at home. why are we paying for that? matter of the big idea. everybody pays in and everybody gets it you can't do that affordably. the cost is blowing right out the roof. >> this is where we expect to see some these problems emerge. especially if you look at this new poll out this morning with this question. do you expect healthcare costs to be better in the next 12 months, worse or will about the same in the last is it months. 22% say better. 55% say it will get worse. and so, governor, i thought that most of these things we kept hearing about owe boom that care wouldn't take place until 2014. why are companies already kicking spouses off of the
5:19 am
roll? >> they are having to because just the cost of health insurance is going up. in california an average of 30% increase in healthcare costs. it's a combination of increasing the benefits. forcing people who put people on their policies with regard noe regard to preexisting condition. think about that it's the equivalent of saying i would like to buy insurance for my car. tell me about your car. i totaled it yesterday. i would like to buy the insurance today so you can replace the car or saying. >> no way. >> or like to buy a house or some fire foosh for my house they say well how many bedrooms. well before it burned down last week it had four. look. if you go to the insurance company and you say i would like to buy insurance. tell me about yourself. well, i have term naval cancer and they give me 8 months to live and my treatments are $120,000 a month. i would like to buy insurance. you can't bill $100 a month and stay in business. north about being cruel. realities or just using
5:20 am
actualial science to make insurance work. >> when we take about dumping spouses. what about grown kids up to age 2 of of 6. how is that, woulding out. >> good idea to say if children are still in college or going through education they can remain on their parent's policy if the cost that you are charging for that is realistically covering what the risks are. frankly, in that age group, it's not going to cost that much. but the problem is when you start forcing everybody to pay this wide array of coverage for things that a lot of people don't want, don't need, can't afford, there is no way the cost doesn't go up. 22% number, i'm wondering what drugs are they on? you have got to be on serious class a narcotics to think that you can expand 30 million people into a system and cost less money. >> same people that give 15% approval rating to congress. i want to meet these people.
5:21 am
>> family of the congress. governor huckabee see more of their analysis right here on saturday night. governor huckabee is there. you will tune in to watch his show. i demand it. >> thanks, governor. >> is your home life hectic? is it's time to run your family as a group of green berets. >> can the oscars set him free? how hollywood is working to free the dork tore who helped us track down usama bin laden from prison. we'll be back. hi. hi.

5:40 am

help. the pakistani doctor who helped the cia track down usama bin laden remains in prison in pakistan. our next guests say it's time for oscar nominees to come to his rescue. >> hand on your pocket. do it. >> robert and kira lawrence are asking the stars of zero dark 30 and other films put spot line at the oscars and help set him free. robin thanks a lot. thanks for joining us. you paid for an ad in the hollywood reporter that made the point that this doctor, dr. freedy, who is being held in and apparently tortured by the pakistanis is one of the main reasons we were able to kill usama bin laden. you put it this way. who will stand up to america menk next time if this is how we treat our friends?
5:46 am
dr. afreedy? >> that's clearly the objective. less than 10 days ago i was in washington, d.c. at a congressional briefing on healthcare which have you been talking about so much this morning. personal medical records. i was invited into a room where they were talking about dr. afreedy. i had no idea who dr. afreedy was. i started asking questions. and i took out my pda and i started googling dr. afreedy. i was shocked to find out how this man who gave his life gave up his relationship with his family h in prison being tortured on a regular basis is simply left behind. and when asked if i had any ideas i said we are a week from the oscars. zero dark 30 is a centerpiece of the oscars. why not mobile mobilize the talent to call action to a campaign which could be the very reason that they're actually there.
5:47 am
bats ever pinpointing usama bin laden. you call him the real star of this film. this is such a great idea. of course we hope that it works. why has it fallen to hollywood to it advocate on behalf of dr. afreedy. where is the president demanding his release from a pakistani jail? >> well, there are things being done. but when hollywood talks, people listen. we're interested in that what jessica is wearing on the red carpet or what kathryn bigelow has to say. i think it brings a whole new audience. who would have heard of darfur it's calling on a larger voice to get the hard hitting news out there to the mainstream. >> also got an audience that may not be as focused on world events and situations like
5:48 am
this which sometime fall under the radar. but, when it comes to the oscars, almost nothing falls under the radar. so, this is such a great idea, you have received any buy-in from actors. are you aware of anybody planning to include comments about dr. afreedy in his or her remarks? >> it is oscar weekend. -- lots of red carpet. lots of nominees and we had some -- we had some really nice people come up saying what is this ribbon that you are wearing like jackie weaver who is a nominee for silver lining's playbook she took a ribbon. we spoke with stacy who is nominated for best picture for django unchained and in our ad she said i loved your ad afridi unchained and we love what you are doing. >> the idea was to actually bring all the no, ma'am he knees together by taking all the pictures and all the titles and almost creating a
5:49 am
parody but in a sense it's a parody that's a try to get anybody who gets a moment in the limelight to walk out there. when the camera is is in front of them or microphone in front of them on the red carpet make that plea to get america behind freeing dr. afridi. and when you look at the shear size of the audience. it's just a unique opportunity. and somebody had to do it. this has been 10 days and the web site free is getting thousands of email addresses. people writing, asking what they can do. wanting to support dr. afreedy. all they do is write their congressman. write the state department. get behind the effort and surely pressure of the program of the size and scope and scale of the academy awards can make a difference if we all pull together. >> to make this totally clear you are just doing this because you think it's the right thing. you are not a professional human rights activists you are
5:50 am
in the healthcare business, i think this is something you think ought to happen? >> we have a company by the name of mmr global. we were in washington for a completely different reason. i have spent basically three or four months setting up presentation to congressional oversight committee on some of the very subjects that you talked about on the show this morning. like duplicate testing and the waste of resources and healthcare. what happened was i heard this story. and i called kira and her valentine's card and val's dinner was checking into hotel in nocialg and -- new york and writing this ad slowed and started this campaign. >> i hope it bears truth. thank you i'm sorry we are out of time. i appreciate what you have done and i hope it works. >> tell any of of the artists listening on the red carpet tonight to say free afridi and if they want we will get them a ribbon. >> next on the run down joe biden says give your wife a shotgun. >> if ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that doubled

>> anna: and don't want his back and hips to hurt whiles' trying to point at the weather map. we'll get you up to speed on your headlines overnight. the father of reeva steenkamp talking about the first time about his daughter's death. oscar pistorius will have to suffer with his conscience and live alone if he lied about shooting her. but the trial could be on hold for a year because of a backlog of cases. the hearing is set for june the 4th. believe it or not, there are still people who aren't allowed or haven't been allowed back into their homes, the new jersey community finally to return yesterday. and this a before and after look at the town one of the worst hit by the storm. it's bittersweet and some people are picking up the pieces and others are finding their homes are out of repair.
6:05 am
>> it doesn't look like it, besides the houses missing, the trees are gone, five or six people moved back into their home, and good news is some people will have lights on, but the bad news some don't have house toss move in. >> anna: and johnny manziel going to court over his nickname. the star quarterback's company j-man 2, and johnnie football, and i saying his name right. >> clayton: manziel. >> anna: give a girl a story to read. and the shirts infringe on his copy right. >> clayton: i thought you were a football fan. >> anna: and getting ready for a third weekend of snow, the winter storm blamed for four deaths in the midwest. and missouri, one of the hardest hit areas, the heavy
6:06 am
snow causing the roof of this dance studio to collapse. no one was inside at the time. and in cleveland, a commuter jet slid off the icy runway after landing. luckily everyone got out safely. and rick reichmuth, 82 degree temperature and a t-shirt. rick, from snow to this, how does it look down there in daytona? >> it looks really good right now. and we might have some rain tomorrow and unfortunately, last year's race was rained out on a sunday and finish on monday and not a bad thing to get prime time monday when you have danica patrick racing the pole position. and you talk about areas of the plains and rain across areas of the southeast, it's been a lot of rain and a lot of georgia has been in drought. so he they need it, but they've gotten too much. the drought is probably mostly wiped out after the last couple of days. so that will be the bright side. but this storm is going to kind of redevelop off shore,
6:07 am
become a bit of a coastal storm, but it's too far off the shore to cause any real significant problems, it's a rain day and a rainy night across the northeast and snow tomorrow around the airbus and getting about three inches of snow and nothing that's going to cause big problems and mostly rain across connecticut and while the snow pack is there, some of the rain could cause extreme localized flooding, also. a look at your forecast tomorrow, the daytona 500, there will have storms in the area and that's not good news, but they have dryers, but an issue last year, with one of the dryers that exploded on the track and they have new dryers and new ways, obviously, to kind of protect something like that happening again. temps today across the rest of the country looking like this. not that bad anywhere and certainly not that cold. look at florida, it's been warm and tampa, 80 degrees, guys, i'm not complaining. >> yeah, you better not. thanks, rick, we'll check back
6:08 am
later with you, thank you so much. let's talk now about the sequester, or as some are calling it this morning, the square sequester. if you listen to the president, published a short time ago, it sounds like armageddon is about to hit us. listen. >> once these cuts take effect. thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off and tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids. air traffic contollers and airport security will see cutbacks causing delays across the country. >> see, if you listen to the president, there, my gosh, there must be republicans behind this idea to begin with, right? and to report out, by bob woodward shows the opposite. >> the white house in a bit of a pickle, i would say, you remember back to the presidential debate on october 22nd when the president looked right into the camera and i'm quoting now. the sequester is not something that i propose, something that congress proposed. now comes bob woodward, hardly an activist to put it mildly,
6:09 am
saying the president is wrong. according to his book, the white house came up with the automatic spending cuts. jack lew came up with it and the president personally signed off on it. >> and is the president trying to rally everyone to make this work or just pointing the finger at the republicans and trying to push the blame on to them? a lot of political pundits are stepping up and a lot of politicians saying, you know what? this is phony in the first place, and you're making this a whole lot worse than it really is. let's listen to rand paul and talk about scare tactics. >> i would say balderdash. it's untrue, unfair, dishonest, disingenuous. the president is making stuff up. he puts law enforcement-- he puts firemen and policemen, 98% of paid for with your local taxes, says you're going to lose your local policemen because of this. it's not true.
6:10 am
the sequester is the slow down in the rate of growth of government. it's the least we can do. our country is drowning in a sea of debt, borrowing $50,000 a second. we have to slow down spending, and for the president to use this histrionics, is really, i think, beneath the office of the presidency. >> compare this to how a family gets its budget. a lot of families cut back in the last five years since the recession and a lot cut 2%, if you cut 2% from your family budget would you deny your kids antibiotics. >> no. >> or stop going to starbucks and you won't cut the essential function of your family and the government by contrast, 2% for ten years, we have no more air traffic contollers -- that's ludicrous. >> clayton: 174 republicans voted for it, the white house signed it they voted on it
6:11 am
because it was such a bad plan. >> tucker: it could be fixed. the president-- >> they're all on vacation. >> tucker: the president could demand authority to target these cuts. everybody, even the white house would concede 2.4% worth of cuts to make to the federal government. and the president could say let's make intelligent cuts. >> anna: but the president doesn't seem to think that we have a spending problem. what do you at home think? 83% of americans registered voters anyway think the government currently does indeed have a spending problem and 14%. >> clayton: some analysis i was reading this morning. when you ask americans generally of course we all think we overspend. when you get into the specific programs, tucker's point, it becomes painful because americans don't like certain programs being cut of course. >> anna: what's helping you. >> tucker: these cuts are designed to give people the impression that every federal employee is integral to the running of the country. you could easily find this much to cut from the budget. again, but you wouldn't cut
6:12 am
things like meat inspectors, you wouldn't cut tsa agents or first responders, they're doing this to convince us, this is what the government does. >> and they're not cuts, right? these are reductions in raises for next year, let us know what you think about this. and you can weigh in on that and this story, which is vice-president biden. i don't know if you heard his advice. a few short days ago about protecting yourself. when you're protecting yourself at home, what should you do, how should you approach it it. if your wife it home alone, how should she protect herself and her family. >> as i told my wife, we live in an area that's wooded and somewhat secluded, said, jill, if there's ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double barrelled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. i promise you, whoever is coming in is not going to -- you don't need an ar-15, it's
6:13 am

6:37 am
things like that. as for jobs they aren't creating as many as you think, and it's a bit ironic when a lot of the hollywood stars are speaking out saying i needed the money when i was flipping burgers and this is eva longoria and this is eva longoria starring in movies and tv shows doesn't need a tax break and ultimately getting one and apparently doesn't seem to be creating jobs. >> clayton: argument had been to create these tax incentives, you're going to create 3,000 jobs, that sound great, right? 3,000 jobs and they end up creating 10 to 15 jobs because what happens is, and as anyone who's ever watched a film come to shoot. batman, dark knight rises comes into pittsburgh. and they came into the city city, filmed for three months and they don't stick around. >> a lot of the problems, they were going to canada because they had a lot of tax breaks

>> at it again. easy for me to say. a private citizen trying to build a privately funded, remember, privately funded memorial to honor our nation's military veterans, but there's a problem.
6:47 am
our next guest has run into a blockade of political correctness, anti-americanism and has actually been told the memorial he wants to build in california cannot include the word the united states. or any military emblems at all. here to explain his story is marine corps veteran, nice to see you to the show. >> good morning, thank you for having me on. put this in context for you, you were trying to build this memorial on a public piece of landte money, small tranquil town, very peaceful area and what happened? >> well, started out about three years ago. and i designed the project, started off by deciding what kind of flagpole we're going to put up. as we moved through the process we introduced it as a gateway monument project to the california department of transportation and the first thing that happened thereafter, we introduced it, they denied it because they said the american flag was in the center of it and the
6:48 am
american flag constituted a form of political speech. after we got that back, i really was very ticked off about that so then the next step was i knew there was a california state law that allowed the american flag and the california state flag, in the state right of way and in the exact area we were going to build our memorial. so, i think-- >> i live in california, i've seen round abouts, you drive your car around a flagpole, what speech is infringed upon there. >> they claimed after 9/11 there was a lawsuit, ended up in the 9th circuit court of appeals. there were a couple of ladies up in santa cruz that put up peace signs and american flags on the overpasses and the local policemen left up the american flag and ended up in the nice circuit court, cal trans loss, but in that instance, cal-trans changed
6:49 am
the policy based on that, in that instance somebody was using the american flag as their form of speech, hanging it over the overpass and i tried to convince cal-trans that what we were trying to do was perfectly legal in that the u.s. code for flying a flag. the flag would be properly displayed and it was the right thing to do. >> clayton: steve the flag is one thing, now the other thing is that they've come back to you and said you can't have the words "the united states" on there? what are you supposed to put on there. >> correct. so i got the flag up. so the flagpole is up there now and the flag is flying and i went back to the director of cal-trans up in sacramento and i said, okay, since you allowed down in san diego, a place called chicano park in the state parkway, fidel castro i'm going to rename my memorial to the protectors of
6:50 am
freedom. and reintroduce it as transportation art. and the director got back to me i encourage you to do that. i did that. >> clayton: i was going to say, where are things this morning? we know over a thousand local veterans in agreement if there's no united states written on there we're not putting up the monument. where do things stand this morning. >> so basically that's what happened, i had to get permission for each branch of the military to use their seals. took he me quite a while to do that. i took care of that. sent the letters in over a year ago to cal-trans, and with those letters and said that these seals cannot be changed in any way whatsoever. so then what happened, i'm proceeding through getting people lined up to help me, the community's coming together to build this project. and then before i go before the county board of supervisors, cal-trans comes and says we need to see a picture of the exactly what those seals are going to look like. and so i get a hold of the foundry in pennsylvania.
6:51 am
send them a picture and cal-trans takes that picture and photo shops out the united states army and said this is what you can use. this is crazy it doesn't mean anything anymore. >> clayton: yeah. >> clayton: they'd be happier with a statue of fidel castro up there. we're out of time and we did reach out to them and keep us abreast of the fight for the monument. appreciate you joining us. >> thank you very much. >> clayton: spring around the corner and bass pro is on the plaza, what they have in store. we'll be outside next. ♪ hi. hi.
